Be Respected And Celebrated For Who You Are


Here to Support Your Whole Self


You can’t solve the world’s biggest problems without an inclusive culture, which is why our global Pride@BCG network strives to make BCG the most fulfilling firm for LGBTQ community members. We provide a welcoming, LGBTQ-friendly environment to ensure that all employees have opportunities to succeed and become leaders for positive change—throughout their careers at BCG and beyond.
Empowered By Our People
Pride@BCG offers extensive career-development support, as well as mentorship and networking opportunities to help you excel and connect with fellow LGBTQ professionals. Use the numerous affiliation events—such as happy hours and global and regional get togethers—to develop strong informal relationships and friendships with senior members of the group. The best part? You’ll always be a part of this amazing community, even if you leave BCG. Pride@BCG alumni maintain an active, ongoing relationship with the group.

Proudly Growing Pride@BCG

From leading-edge benefits to 1:1 mentoring opportunities, our support of the LGBTQ community runs deep.

Our Focuses

Our organization is most successful when we elevate our diversity of thought and create environments where all our employees can thrive. That’s why Pride@BCG concentrates on:


  • expanding access to outstanding LGBTQ talent pools by sponsoring recruiting events across our footprint, such as ROMBA (USA), EurOut (Europe), LGBT Leaders (UK), LGBT Talents (France), and Pride2Be (Brazil)

  • creating a culture that is safe and comfortable for all LGBTQ BCGers so that they feel able to be themselves fully at work


  • conducting and publishing original research and thought leadership on LGBTQ-related topics
​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
  • articulating BCG’s values externally at tables and in forums that matter
Respecting Your Journey

Pride@BCG recognizes the social and cultural differences that may exist globally, so we’ve created three membership levels so you can engage comfortably with the network. You can choose to be 1) a general member (out to all of BCG), 2) a confidential member (out only to Pride@BCG members), or 3) a confidential subscriber to our emails (out only to Pride@BCG admin team). If you do not identify as LGBTQ, we welcome you to join as an ally.


We fully respect each person’s choices about their own journey and, where appropriate, need for confidentiality. Your choice to come out to your fellow BCGers is your choice, and we respect your privacy. For more information about our network, please write to pride@bcg.com.
